“We invite interesting people who bring something new to every episode. As we continue to film, we are hoping to bring a combination of leaders, thought, academia, nonprofit organizations, VU professors and more,” Zelechoski said. “We have so many unbelievable people in this region and yet most of the time, others see them as unapproachable because they don’t personally know them.

When dealing with something as intense as flying in a rocket ship to the moon, this...
